STEM Career Fair: Students & Postdocs

Calling all Penn Engineers, candidates in STEM fields, and those interested in science, data, and technology – you’re invited to the 2023 STEM Career Fair on Friday, February 17, 2023 from 11:00am-4:00pm EST!

Participating organizations are seeking current undergraduate and graduate students, postdoctoral fellows, and recent alumni for internships and full-time opportunities!

Who can attend?

  • Current Penn undergraduate students
  • Current Penn graduate students
  • Alumni from Penn graduate and undergraduate programs
  • Current postdocs at Penn

CLICK HERE TO REGISTER

You can find a list of currently registered employers for the in-person event HERE.

Students and postdocs will have the opportunity to upload their resumes prior to the career fair, and these will be shared with all employers 710 days prior to the virtual and inperson career fair. This provides employers with the opportunity to reach out to students/postdocs directly if they choose to do so.
 
This is an extra opportunity, and does not take the place of applying for specific positions at organizations that you are interested in. Resumes uploaded for the resume books will be viewed by any employer that has registered for this event.

To upload your resume, please select the link below that reflects your degree/academic status at Penn, and your interest in fulltime or internship opportunities.

Alumni: If you are a Penn alum/alumna, please choose the category that reflects the degree your received from Penn or your most recent degree status (e.g., if you are a Penn undergraduate alum with a PhD from another institution, you can choose the PhD/postdoc option)

Best practices:
  • Upload a PDF version of your resume
  • If you are a PhD/postdoc, a 13 page resume will be more effective than a longer academic CV
  • Keep your preferred employer audience in mind as you create a general version of your resume. You will have the option to add to add some descriptive keywords about your skills and interests when you upload your resume to the box file (e.g., Neuroscience PhD student with strong interest in life science consulting)
 
Here are some general resume resources:
